Hello New Friends
We're so happy to meet you! This can be a pretty confusing time, and that's ok. We have info and resources for you below. We can't wait for your child to become a Roxhill Roxstar and for your family to join our amazing community.
*This page is in development. Please bear with us while we continue to add information.
Virtual Video Tour
We wish you could come tour the school in-person, but until then the school staff have made this video tour to tide you over.
Some basic info:
7:55 a.m. - 2:25 p.m.
Early Release Wednesday: 7:55 a.m. - 1:10 p.m.
Students may arrive at 7:40am when supervision is available. Currently SPS guidance is that no families enter the building. Our drop-off procedures will be similar to last year. Walkers can enter through north gate on Holden and west gate by the ramp on 34th. We will have curbside drop-off and pickup again this year with a slight change where buses will drop off on Holden and families going north on 34th Ave SW.
Cloth face coverings or masks will be required for school personnel, PreK-12 students, families, and visitors for the 2021-22 school year. Learn more here: Seattle Public Schools Link
Kindergarten Jump Start:
Tuesday August 17th-Wednesday August 18th 2021: Jump Start, if you can do it, is a great way to give a new Kindergartner a "practice" week of school. This year it will be 2 days instead of the usual 5. They get to meet all our Kindergarten teachers, make new friends and get comfortable at their new school. And it's just for Kindergartners! No other grades are there. It's a low stress way for them to ease into this new environment. It's also a great way for new adults to meet each other at drop-off and pick up. It's suggested to sign up in advance, but if you miss it, it's ok. You can still show up the first day and fill out a little paperwork. Learn more here: Seattle Public Schools Link
After School Care Servicing the Area:
Many Roxhill families require after school care for their children. "After care" is care for your child after the school day has ended. There are more providers near us and private daycare options, this is just to help you get started. Programs fill up fast. So the earlier you sign up, the better.
Located less than a mile from school, there's a yellow school bus that picks children up from Roxhill Elementary at the end of the school day and takes them to Highpoint Community Center for this program. You will need to sign them up at Highpoint for the program and also contact bus services to get your child added to the bus route. *Financial help may be available
Roxhill Elementary is a YMCA after school site. This mean that the YMCA offers after care at our school and grownups can pick their child up right from the school. If you are interested in YMCA aftercare, sign up here: LINK *Financial help may be available
Special Education & IEPs:
The SPS Special Education department works collaboratively with the school and your family to provide the guidance, supports, and services needed to ensure students with disabilities succeed. A referral is your first step in this process. It's a written request for evaluation and your evaluation will determine what services your child can receive. Learn more here.
"The school looks like it should be a movie set. It's such a beautiful classic brick schoolhouse."

Originally built in 1926, our historic school went through a multi-year modernization and renovation completed in 2018. A lot of the original architecture remains, but we now have many updates and the latest modern tech. The best of both worlds!
